Dismayed at Roberts 2

October 22, 2004

So the new PhD code will involve the Higher Education Funding Council for England in a new inspection regime that will be "paper based, with follow-up visits" (News, October 15) . Then there is the introduction of the Office of the Independent Adjudicator, the Office for Fair Access and the impending additional involvement of the Charities Commissioners with their plethora of new reports for us all to do. Can we just be thankful that the Government sees this as a "reduction" in bureaucracy? Heaven help us if they ever set out to increase it. I am grateful to all such agencies for keeping me in a job.
